About Andrea

We are retired from the Philadelphia area and now live in on James Island in Charleston.. Along with our daughter (Charleston school teacher) we looked and found 9 23rd Avenue - we hope to make it a great vacation spot for multiple families and friends for years to come.

Andrea purchased this house in 2009

Why Andrea chose Isle of Palms

We recently sold our beach house at the Jersey shore. We looked at numerous locations in Charleston - when we saw this home on Isle of Palms, we knew we had found the best of the bunch.

What makes this house unique

The house is surrounded by live oaks and palm trees. Besides being close to the beach, there is a park with basketball, tennis, playground just a quick bike ride away. The house is surrounded by lovely homes in a quiet and convenient area close to little town area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an extended family vacation/reunion. We came from Manhattan Beach, CA; Fort Wayne, IN; and Charlotte, NC. We had 12 people and we had plenty of space. We loved the house. The bedrooms were wonderful. We used the pool everyday. The ocean is so close and we enjoyed it daily. We made many trips into Charleston. We enjoyed so many wonderful restaurants. We took a haunted tour and a carriage ride. It was the best of two worlds - a beach vacation and a historic city vacation. Great food, great shopping, biking, swimming, paddle boarding. We had a great time.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

There are reasons that this property has gotten such great reviews. First of all, Andrea was just great to work with. As mentioned in another review, she makes you truly feel like you are a guest in their home, not just a renter. She answered any questions I had very promptly, and provided a lot of great information about the home and things to do in the area. The home is beautiful and includes amenities that most other rentals do not- cleaning supplies, most any cooking utensil you can think of, including spices, and even bikes and beach gear. Everything was clean and comfortable. The pool area and the rooftop deck were great places for my friends and I to re-connect and reminisce. I would highly recommend this property, and will most likely return next year. I rent frequently through VRBO, and this was the best experience I've ever had, mostly due to Andrea and Rowland's thoughtfulness and hospitality.

Avalon by the Sea is a gorgeous and spacious seaside retreat for large families to enjoy

  • 5 of 5

Avalon by the Sea is situated off of a quiet street within walking distance from the beach. The main living areas are large and open which made them perfect for gathering together as a family over a meal in the dining room or cooking together in the kitchen. Each bedroom is spacious and equipped with a private bath which made it a perfect for our family reunion. The owners even included a nice bin of toys which our kids loved. The owners are very responsive and pleasant to communicate with. This was our best VRBO experience to date!

Great Home and well taken care of

  • 5 of 5

I can honestly say the home was very well cared for. The owners were very nice and extended themselves thru the entire process.

Think I can honestly say that after all my years of staying on the IOP - this house tops them all and the most surprising thing is that the pictures shown of the home are EXACTLY what you will see when you enter the home.

I will request this home again every time I visit in the future.

Cannot say enough great things about our stay! We usually stay at Kiawah, but this was so much closer to everything. This house is amazing! Tastefully decorated. Met all our needs and more. Andrea is wonderful and was quick to respond to questions, concerns. Pool was the perfect size for our 2, 4, and 6 year old grandchildren. Quiet location. Andrea provided so many pool and beach toys and chairs we shouldn't have packed any. Future guests, please be kind to the owners by washing sand off toys, etc. The owners do more than imagined to make our stay memorable. Highly recommend this absolutely beautiful home and pool. Close to beach. Minutes from Sullivan's Island, a great place for eating out. Minutes from Boone Plantation. We went to their Halloween Hay Ride and corn maze. Very near downtown Charleston. I would love to stay here again! If you're looking for a perfect vacation, don't hesitate booking this home if available. Thank you to Andrea for your kindness!! You're a vacationers dream!

The house is beautifully furnished, very spacious and we had everything we needed. Beach and grocery store are just a hop skip away. Would love to return someday. Hurricane Irma, thanks for getting out of our way!
